My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

(Almost)Wordless Wednesday


Light a candle. Say a prayer. Make a wish….

How well I remember this lovely ritual, from my childhood. I send out a wish to all my blog friends that you will find the wonder and magic of this beautiful season.

May all your wishes and hopes for the new year come true.

PS: Hooray! Just noted, this post is my 100th at My Poetic Path. I’m so glad to be sharing the blogosphere with such good friends.  🙂

    Hi Paisley, Focus on the light in your life Paisley, it is there. So many people have so little and nothing to look forward to. As you said in a recent post, the freedom and security you enjoy are both things that can be hard to find and much to be appreciated. I hope you find peace and happiness in the new year. Hang in there.

  8. Congrats. on your 100th post. Thank you for the good wishes and the same to you.

    When I was a child my mother told me to make a wish with a stir of the Christmas pudding. Then there was the wish bone from the chicken or turkey. The person who got the biggest part, when it was pulled, made the wish. Do you have those traditions?
